    Ok we are heading off out to dinner on Friday night to a posh resteraunt and i would like to know the rough idea of points before i go so i was thinking of having

    Starter - Watts Farm asparagus, poached hens egg & sorrel ( does 1.5 points sound ok for this )

    Main - Braised breast of new season lamb, basil pommes puree & English peas or

    Roast wing of skate, buttered English asparagus, Jersey Royals & cherry tomatoes ( maybe about 6 points for this one ? )

    Dessert -
    Chocolate brownie & Tahitian vanilla ice cream or
    Crème brulée with hazelnut shortbread
    ( no idea of the points for these )

    ask for the starter not to have butter on, as that will massively increase the points
    main I would allow a few more than 6, maybe 10?
    And the dessert, I would have creme brulee, and leave the shortbread. Then it would be about 6 points I think?

    I wasnt sure about the main as the skate is only 2.5 and if the asparagus is not buttered the only other pointed food would be the spuds and its a fancy place so i cant imagine the portion sizes will be very big and you get quite alot of spuds for 2.5 points :confused:

    they do have sorbet on the menu for dessert maybe i could have that instead i believe thats quite low in points

    Isn't creme brulee about 10 points? Is that the one that's cream custardy with a sugar glazed top?

    Go with sorbet, that's much safer points wise. The skate choice should be ok as long as you ask for no butter on the spuds. I wonder if they can do you asparagus without butter too? That's what'll hike your points up.

    Have a fab time though. It sounds lovely. Let us know if it's really as yummy as it sounds.
